Department of Mechatronics and Automation Engineering
Indian Institute of Information Technology Bhagalpur started functioning from August, 2017 with two departments, namely, Computer Science Engineering and Electronics and Communication Engineering. However, a synergetic integration of electronics with mechanical engineering along with intelligent computer control is required for improving the functionality, productivity and efficiency in design and manufacturing of products. This calls for the introduction of Mechatronics Engineering branch at IIIT Bhagalpur.
The program combines mechanical design, manufacturing, automation and electrical/ electronics control within a foundational context of design and manufacturing. Degree holders under the discipline will have the opportunity to work in various sectors, viz., aviation, electronics, automobile, manufacturing, oil and gas, mining, transport, defence, robotics and aerospace industries from pursuing higher degree.
The following are the objectives of the proposed degree:
- The program will produce graduates that are prepared for successful careers in the area associated with the analysis, applied design, development, implementation, and oversight of electro-mechanical, mechatronics, robotics and automation systems.
- The program will prepare graduates that advance in their careers and continue their professional development.
- The program will prepare graduates that understand the overall human context in which engineering technology activities take place.
